Fort Greene Brooklyn Luxury Apartment Rentals

Searching for an affordable luxury apartment can be a daunting task.  Is one neighborhood better than another?  Where do I want to raise my kids? How long will it take to get to work?  Do I want to own or rent?  Do I get a condo or a house?  These are all questions we must ask ourselves before we even start looking into prices and availabilities.  After you have answered these questions, then you can start narrowing down where to search.  Personally, I like Fort Greene.  Why?, you ask.  Simple, I like the history.

The history and culture in Fort Greene is something you should take in if you have a chance. Fort Greene is a New York City–designated Historic District.  Look up General Nathanael Greene, and you can find out how Fort Greene got its name.

I found this building at 300 Ashland Place, that integrates the historic culture of the neighborhood and modern luxury apartment living.  The Brooklyn Public Library is right onsite, as well as, art exhibitions by the Museum of Contemporary African Diaspora Arts.

The list of amenities the luxury building brings to the historic neighborhood include a roof top deck, a full time doorman, 24 hour front desk concierge, a parking garage, and bike storage.
